Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat (or should I say my sewing box, as it’s stuffed full of handmade Christmas projects). This year I haven’t been making so much, as I’ve been focusing on small presents (and large ones: little man is getting a dinosaur cape if I can manage to whip it up in time). I have however had time to make a few new felt decorations. Now we have our tree but we haven’t decorated it yet I put the decorations up 2 weeks before Christmas. I have however, as a one off special, for this blog, put a couple of my decorations on the tree so you can see them (you don’t know how lucky you are!).
Place the ribbon between the two felt hearts (with the holly leaves facing out). Start by sewing the ribbon into place with a small running stitch and carry on working your way round, going through both layers of felt.
These lovely felt baubles, I found on a lovely blog. I won’t tell you how I made them as you can pop over there yourself and check them out for yourselves. Needless to say I had a lot of fun making them. They really reminded me of decorations we had as children (except those ones were made of a shiny plastic foil).
Well that’s all for this post. I hope all your Christmas crafting is going well. Next time I’ll probably show you some of our decorations, once they are up (mostly because I get so excited, I will have to share it with you as hubby isn’t fussed either way, well not in the same way I am!)
